'Redrottie' !! (Kayla my Red Rottweiler)

by K johnson
(UK)




This is my girl Kayla... she is 100% rottie not a crossbred dog..

she was born into a litter of 9, 7 of which were perfectly 'normal' rotties.. but her and a brother were blond at birth with a total lack of markings...

By 12 weeks she was a glorious red colour and has remained since to this day.. she has a total lack of black with a pink/brown nose brown claws and pads.. her fur is 2 tone blond/red and in summer you can see her 'rottie' fur markings as a slightly more blonde markings in her fur..

apart from the colour she is all rottie in every sense of the word.. a beautiful, loyal, highly intelligent girl, my big beautiful bear xx



Hi,
Thanks so much for sharing these great photos. Kayla is gorgeous, and these are the first really good photos I've seen of a purebred Red Rottweiler. True, purebred Red Rotties are very rare!

You can definitely see in her head shape and expression that's she's all Rottweiler. She looks like such a sweetheart too - typical Rottie grin :)

I'd like to share this....

On my Red Rottweilers & Rare Rottweilers, I've tried to give some history on why red or blue Rotties still occasionally show up in purebred lines.

I also explain that these rare color-ways sometimes produce dogs with more health problems than the accepted black-and-tan dogs, are not eligible to be shown, and don't fit the breed standard. That's why breeding for 'red' or any other 'rare' color isn't a good idea for the breed as a whole in the long term.

In the past, my words have been misinterpreted and criticized because some readers think I'm 'knocking' these Rotties, or think they're lesser dogs than the black and tan variety. That is definitely not true, and not what I'm trying to say at all.

Color is only part of what makes a Rottweiler a Rottweiler, and it's what's on the inside that is more important and what makes the breed so special. I'm absolutely certain that Kayla is a fantastic dog because she's all Rottie inside, and she is beautiful on the outside that's for sure.

The main point I try to make on that webpage is that although rare and beautiful in their own right, Rotties who are an unacceptable color according to breed standards shouldn't be bred from, because of the health concerns and because it wouldn't benefit the breed as a whole. That DOES NOT mean that you shouldn't buy a red rottie!

And the last point I want to make is that you shouldn't be expected to pay an exorbitant price for a Rottie (or any other dog in any breed for that matter) that is 'different'. Yes, it's rare, beautiful and you should be proud to own that dog, but it's not something you should have to pay extra for. It's one of nature's little genetic quirks, and she didn't charge extra for making it :)

I hope both you, and everyone reading this, understands what I'm saying and thank you again for such great photos. It's wonderful to see such a beautiful example of a rare color.

My Red NEW
by: Anonymous

Thanks so much for the information After I rescued a dog off the street I had him genetically tested and found that he's a Rottie with a trace of Pit in him, but the color and texture of his coat looks like neither Rottie or Pit After some research I've found out about Red Rotties and I feel that almost certainly my dog who I've named Jason is in fact a Red Rottie Oh, and quite accidentally I found out that before he was abandoned on the street he was called "Red."

Health is more important NEW
by: Sonya

What a gorgeous dog. Kayla looks happy and healthy, that's most important.
One of the most beautiful rottweilers I have ever seen was a huge boy at 18th old. He looked like a show star, everything about him was of a 'Wow' standard except - he had drooping eyelids. They just kept growing and growing. To the point that he had to have surgery every few months to correct them for the rest of his life. He'd already had 6 ops. The owner said it was due to improper breeding. While trying to improve his genetics and get the perfect dog they ended up with a unwanted painful side effect that ruined the poor beautiful boys life. It's just not worth the suffering. If you must breed your dog's, breed them for health and happiness, not for looks

Kayla NEW
by: Russ Crow

My wife and I have bred our 100% full blooded Rottweilers and got a litter of 11 including 3 reds. We kept a red male who is now 45# at 20 weeks old. He's extremely smart and is healthy. We have traced our adults lineage back to 1904 and 1911. So there is no doubt they have not been mixed bred with anything else. I have no plans on breeding my little buddy Meeko. He's just my best friend besides my wife and kids.

In love with my red rottie called "Rosco" NEW
by: Margaret S

Roc for short is a beautiful loving and protective friend. He's funny, strong, and playful. As a one year old dog (puppy), he is very smart but very stubborn. My husband and I are working on training him using simple commands. He is more willing when food is the reward. He is greedy as hell but he doesn't wolf it down. He is not ravenous. About him being rare, I really don't care about all that. I love this dog. I'm a member of the AKC and I'm aware of the standard markings for show and all the rules for breeding in terms health. Okay. He's my pet and he's a great leader and protector. He is still tearing up stuff and hiding my stuff but with time and patience and discipline he will be just fine. He is every bit of a rottie or more as any black and yellow rott. Take that you black and yellow rottie owners. You wish you had a rare red rottie called Rosco.

Thank you for sharing NEW
by: Kim

Seeing Kayla gives me an idea of what our Maple is. We adopted her a month ago and have been trying to figure out her breed (she was a rescue dog). We have had 2 rotties in the past and her look just made us fall in love with her. I am convinced that she may be a red Rottweiler. Thank you for sharing!

Baxter a Rottie? NEW
by: Baxter's mom

Kayla is absolutely beautiful! Our dog is a rescue so we do not know his true history and did a DNA test. We thought he was Boxer/American Pitt mix but the results came back that he has one parent that is 100% pure Rottweiler and the other parent a mix breed with 35% American Staffordshire Terrier (Pitt). I don’t know if I trust the DNA test but would really like to know his breed for health information. He looked more fawn color when we got him at an estimated 5 or 6 months old. He is almost a year and has turned more Red and very short silky fur with a white diamond on his chest, white line down his nose, and little white on his feet. Black nose, lips and above his mouth. He is only 50 pounds, slim frame and long tail. He is active but does get tired. He is the sweetest dog and a cuddlier. He is not at all aggressive and will coward if another dog is. Very big chewer and toys do not last long including Kong so always need to keep a close eye on him.

My kayla will remain a one off... NEW
by: Anonymous

I agree wholeheartedly with you... this is the reason why we have never attempted to breed Kayla.. to us she is a member of our family NOT a means of making money..she was bought to be a much loved pet which indeed she is. besides the way genetics work would probably mean she would have normal coloured rotties with a chance of carrying her defective gene... bad news all round. We are responsible dog owners who on wanting a 'normal' rottie decided to take on this special little girl and we actually paid less for her not more..

I just wanted to share her with you as one of the ways rotties can turn out through quirk of nature. she is NOT a cross breed, nor were we duped into buying her.

Lovely PET only NEW
by: lance

Kayla is a beautiful dog but I hope all you people do not go out there and intentionally try and backyard breed or find one to breed for this type of recessive coat color. I have seen a purebred long haired Rottweiler (looked like a Newfoundland with rottie markings)but never red. The genetics of these lovely animals should be stopped just as the owner of this site has said and never bred for our own selfish reasons which usually is monitory.

Just like people who try and breed what they call Imperial Shih Tzus for 3-4 times what they should, which are called pocket puppy or purse puppies now. Big money for irresponsible breeding, new big thing. You all know it is OUR FAULT for this for we still go out and buy these genetically weak dogs from irreputable breeders. These Shih Tzus are runts for a reason, Kayla is red for a reason, something is wrong with them genetically. If you keep breeding bad genetics together it only ruins the bred itself. Nothing against Kayla as a Pet (awesome dog.

Please do not breed these types of recessive gene dogs it not only hurts them breed wise, but medically as well and could change what 1000's of reputable breeders in the past 100+ yrs all over the world, have come to love.

In my opinion the Rottweiler is the best dog breed in the world.

Just some info! NEW
by: Anonymous

The breeders or recent owners probably lied about her being pure bred. I would know! I have a Rottweiler named stitch that is all red with a white star on his chest. He is 1/4 German shephard and 3/4 rottie. I even have him in the same pose as you're dog! Weird isn't it? Oh and I am not trying to pick on you either! Rotties forever! Hope I helped! Bye!
